The law defines Battery as when a person intentionally strikes someone else or purposefully causes physical harm to another person. With the exception of certain circumstances, battery is a first-degree misdemeanor crime, punishable by one year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

Felony battery is a more serious offense with elevated penalties. Felony battery occurs when the perpetrator commits battery with a prior battery or felony battery conviction. This offense is a third degree felony, punishable by a $5,000 fine and ten years in prison. Call Jennito if you have been charge of a battery charge.
